Possibility of deactivation BPMCSRF Token for REST API V2 calls

Since we will be connecting an application frontend to the BPM REST API V2 and, according to the system target architecture, all calls should go through our API Gateway we need to establish a connection to the BPM REST API V2 through the gateway. We are using the API to start process instances, get the current state of a process and completing human tasks from a non BPM frontend. BPM REST API V2 is a standard API, provided by the BPM installation. In addition to the authorization for the calls themselves and basic authentication, there is a login call that generates a token that prevents Cross Site Scripting. This Token is called BPMCSRFToken and has to be passed as a header in all calls following the login call. After talking to the API Gateway team, this authorization method can not be easily implemented on our side. Therefore, to satisfy the architectural restrictions, the BPMCSRFToken generation should be deactivated on BPM configuratively.

It should be possible to deactivate the BPMCSRFToken token for BPM REST API V2.
